    ADR's, I had these on my RS and put them on this. I was thinking about buying new, but these look pretty good, don't you think?

    Wait a few years when you make the next jump up in the model....

    You mean wait a few yrs to upgrade to the STI? I would agree, it took me a little while to get used to my RS (I only owned toyota trucks before) I got really good at driving the RS. I feel like I'm starting all over with the WRX. I commute 18 miles from 4000 feet upto 7500 feet and then back down to 6200 feet elevation twice a day. It's the funest drive ever whith this car!

    Anybody got any sugestions for my first upgrade?

    My suggestion would be a new set of tires follows by front and rear sway bars/endlinks. I'm sure coming from a RS The wrx has plenty of power for now. I'd work on the suspension and probaly more importantly the braking aspect of the car since you are apparently driving down some steep hills.

    I'm thinking you meant that he probably lost some money on the trade unless it was paid off already and I would agree with that. To the OP...Congrats on the new ride!!!

    Might want to delete that before the "Pics of you not car" and BrianH finds this thread.
